    Is there any value in links that have anchor text along the lines of "Click Here" or "Visit Site"??

    My thinking is they will add weight to your site, but do very little for rank for specific keywords??

    What do others think?

    I think that anchor text like this makes sites look more natural to google but haven't got enough data to prove or disprove how effective it is in helping you rank for specific terms.

    I'd be interested to hear from some of the more experienced people here too.

    If you can not get the backlink any other way (i.e. without the desired anchor text) then get it as after all it is another backlink!

    However for the rankings it is never going to be as good as a keyword rich backlink!

    No they won't help you to rank for your keywords like "Buy Honda Civic 2010" etc

    So MIGHT just help with pagerank, but no use for specific ranks. Pretty useless apart from vanity then.

    Although not weighted much "visit" is one of my keywords - so I'll take a "visit site" link anyday
